trailer break: ‘The Imaginarium of Doctor Parnassus’

Take a break from work: watch a trailer…

Well. I was about to say that this looks like nothing I’ve ever seen before, except that I do see shades of Terry Gilliam’s The Adventures of Baron Munchausen in the snippets here. And maybe some stuff that Tim Burton has dreamed up… a bit of Edward Scissorhands, maybe.

And how creepy is Johnny Depp’s line here: “Nothing’s permanent — not even death”? I mean, in light of the fact that Heath Ledger died halfway through making this movie, and even that didn’t stop the film — or Ledger — from going on? Gives me shivers…

The Imaginarium of Doctor Parnassus opens in the U.K. on October 16, and in the U.S. on December 25.
